    Default 02 chevy 1500 power steering problem

    need some help folks, any insite would help. i have trouble turning right when idle, but turning left is no problem. also, when vehicle is in motion, no problems with power steering. i just had the power steering fluid flushed but did not fix it. has anyone run into this?

    I have to run into the same problem in my 2000 silverado. It worked fine until about a year ago when the old power steering pump went out and I replaced it with a rebuilt one. I have noticed that at higher RPM's (just above idle) it frees up. I wish I had the answer.

    Sounds like your gear box is hanging up.
